What kind of picture of God are we drawing?

It was in elementary school art class.
Students were told they could draw anything they chose to put in their art books.
One small girl immediately set to work on her project. Hunched over her desk, she was putting every ounce of her being into the all-important assignment she had given herself.
After a few minutes passed, the teacher got up and walked past the desks of all the pupils to see and inquire about what they were doing.
When the teacher came to the desk of the extremely conscientious little girl, she stopped and said, “Tell me, dear, what you are doing?”
“Oh,” she said, “I’m drawing a picture of God.”
“But, my dear,“ the teacher said, “no one knows what God looks like.”
Undaunted, the little girl replied, “Well, they will when I finish my picture.”
What about you and me? What kind of picture of God are we drawing with our lives?

Is it a picture of love, kindness, and concern for others?

Is it a picture of sacrifice, a willingness to give of ourselves so that others may live?

When we finish drawing our picture of God with the lives that we have lived, are we making certain that others will be able to look upon our work and say, “It’s beautiful. I can see God in everything they did.”
